The 2018 Footballguys Players Championship is fast approaching 300 completed drafts already. More than $2,100,000 in prizes will be awarded after the 2018 season including the $250,000 grand prize. At only a $350 entry fee, can you afford not to play in this tournament?
As a reminder, there are TWO “pre-season” free agency processes. The first is scheduled on the Friday prior to Labor Day weekend, at 10 pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before the Thursday prior to Labor Day weekend. The second is scheduled on Wednesday after Labor Day weekend, at 10 pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before Tuesday, after Labor Day weekend. All FPC leagues drafted on or after Wednesday, after Labor Day weekend will begin free agency after NFL Week 1 has concluded.
You’ll get your draft slot as soon as your league fills–which won’t take long, we promise! The prize pool–paying all the way down to 700th place–will still remain the same, as will the two preseason waiver wires we introduced last season as well. And the league prize values are up to $2300 this season as well, so grab your preferred draft times and dates now!

The 2018 FFPC Terminator Tournament is already off and running with a guaranteed $25,000 grand prize, an increase of 150 percent from last season! This is truly a unique way to play fantasy football and we’re proud to call it an FFPC exclusive, especially since it now has a $100,000 prize pool as well. The Terminator concept was created in 2009, and it is actually quite simple. By adding just a few tweaks to the standard Draft Experts format, it completely alters it and creates this brand new format that has proven to be exciting and challenging. Did one of your players get injured or is underperforming? Terminate him!
